HAIL OF BULLETS launch "DG-7" from "III The Rommel Chronicles" via Stereogum!
Dutch Death Metal giants HAIL OF BULLETS have released a new track from their forthcoming album, "III The Rommel Chronicles." The new song, "DG-7," is available for streaming now at stereogum.com. "III The Rommel Chronicles"Instead of describing a certain campaign or theatre of war, as the band had on their previous releases, this album focuses on the military life, rise and fall of German field marshal Erwin Rommel. Despite fighting on the wrong side, Rommel was undeniably a great strategist who was both feared and admired by his enemies. Listen to "DG-7" on stereogum.com now HERE.
"III The Rommel Chronicles"began to take shape in the second half of 2012 when HAIL OF BULLETS started writing songs for this third album. Musically, "III The Rommel Chronicles" recalls a bit of their debut album. The songs are faster, more raw, more aggressive and direct than on "On Divine Winds" which had a more epic, heroic feel. Once again, production duties were handled by Ed Warby and the album was mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö. A new lyrical approach also necessitated a different style of artwork, which was provided by Dutch artist Erik Wijnands.
Death Metal guru Dan Swanö about the new HOB album: "Hail of Bullets return for their 3rd album, armed to the teeth with a thunderous Death Metal onslaught that combines the raw ferocity of the 1st album with the more expanded arrangements of the 2nd. A Death Metal masterpiece!"
